Dual-wield Any Artifact Appearances, Even Off-hands from the Same Class

Recommended Posts

The recent loosening of restrictions on the Legion artifact transmogs was a great thing, but it's getting better by the beta build! Last week we found out that you can interchange which off-hand you transmog when using an artifact main, including other specs' weapons (or just the standard dual-wield 2 identical Doomhammers plan), and this week it's gotten even better. With the new beta build you can now actually transmog the special appearance off-hands as well, be it as mainhands or off.
With the recent transmogability of artifacts, we'll also be talking about the possibility/need for allowing some of the currently unobtainable appearances to be obtainable again.

In the example below, as noted by redditor kidwifi, you can wield the off-hand conjured lighting axe from the Stormbringer appearance for Doomhammer, in your main hand and off hands and use it as main in any Shaman spec:

This really opens up many new options (for those specs that dual-wield or use an off-hand), as this very happy Demon Hunter shows:

While the release of these restrictions is definitely something to celebrate, it does now create an issue out of certain artifact appearances no longer being attainable. As some community members have pointed out, back when we thought the appearances were going to be limited to Legion only and actually having to equip the artifact, the decision whether to focus on getting these special appearances or not wasn't the same as it would have been had we known they'd be transmoggable in the future. This has led to a lot of players hoping/wanting an option to get them once again, and Torghast seems like the perfect place for it, if I do say so myself!

Off topic, but how does Enh shaman feel in comparison to BfA? I've been enjoying my shammy, but I'm considering switching to Frost Mage. Is it harder? Are there more buttons to press etc

Honestly, the people that received the appearances from the mage tower etc during current should only have them, if you weren't able to get them in the entire duration they were available (which was almost a year and a half) that's on you. People complaining about things like that is why the community is in the dumps lol (specific portion not the whole community).

From what I've heard it's more fun as it's more towards what it was in MoP/WoD and I loved Enhancement in Mop. I think a lot of what people are tackling now are the talent synergies/interactions with certain abilities. But yes there are more buttons to press, which in my opinion is always welcome.

      Ogrimmmar has tried to express various WoW zones via emojis, and there's a pretty fun guessing game in there as well!
      It's pretty fun trying to decipher the pictograms and where they belong exactly, with some being pretty obvious, and one even being a bit misleading/confusing (see if you can spot that one). You can check out the solutions below the image, and see how well you did (the last one is especially solid)!

      Number 8 was the problematic one, as the author combined Silithus and Uldum, but the rest are pretty much on point. Also, this obviously needs to be a thing for WoW terms in general, as it's pretty fun spotting the intended meaning, and we could use some tougher ones!

      Blizzard talk about the specifics of the Valor caps and how they will be accelerating them due to the systems late addition, with a 5000 cap to start, increasing by 750 each week. You also won't be able to hoard it, as a character can only hold 1500 at a time.

      As we’ve tested and iterated on the changes in patch 9.0.5, we’ve concluded that Valor for Mythic Keystone Dungeon gear would benefit from an immediate kickstart, so we’re adjusting the configuration of Valor caps. This currency is being added well into Shadowlands Season 1, so we want to pace it as though it’s been available for several weeks, giving players a large measure of gear catch-up capacity from the start.
      In 9.0.5, there will be a weekly Valor cap that increases by 750 Valor each week, and the cap will start at 5000 Valor earnable in the first week. In the second week of 9.0.5, the Valor cap will be 5750. In week 3, the Valor cap will be 6500, etc. There will be a cap of 1500 on how much Valor a character can hold at a time. As always, thank you for your testing and feedback.

      The Alliance Castle Nathria Mythic Hall of Fame is finally full, but it appears that a Chinese boosting guild has filled it with many Cutting Edge runs discovered by players through Warcraft Logs.
      The Alliance has filled the Hall of Fame 29 days after the Horde, but according to reports, a Chinese guild named Q728 has sold more than 50 Hall of Fame / Cutting Edge pilots this tier. The alleged boosting occurs in each tier, but it is super obvious this time around.
      Reddit user Drathos1337 provided us with two interesting Warcraft Logs links. The first one links to their rosters and contains hundreds of characters with oddly similar performance on the final bosses after not performing that well on early ones, which hints at pilots. The second link contains their calendar, where you can view the individual runs.
      Many players are calling for a complete overhaul of the Hall of Fame system due to the boosts and Alliance taking a long time to fill it.

      We've seen plenty of WoW recreations in other games, from Minecraft, the Sims and so on, but this is a pretty new one as a part of Stormwind has been made in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater!
      While the details aren't exactly high, the architecture seems to be all there, but more importantly it looks to be a pretty solid skate park, with plenty of places to grind, wheelie and other skating terms I definitely know and didn't google like like ollie, boardslide and darkslide. The music isn't half bad either!
      This particular map is only available on the PS4, however, but it's still damn cool to just look at.

      It seems there's a much easier way to handle Devos, the final boss of the Spires of Ascension, as many players have been using this extremely powerful cheese/creative use of game mechanics/exploit to speed things up and make the encounter trivial.
      As spotted by the WoW Highlights Youtube channel, the method actually kind of breaks the boss, as Devos does none of her mechanics after the cheese, and it's pretty easy to pull off too. While this seems like an extremely obvious exploit, it's interesting to know that something very similar happened back in King's Rest, where you could do the same thing to Mchimba the Embalmer, the second boss, and Blizzard actually allowed that, even in the MDI, as Ellesmere points out and explains this new Spires method:

      You can see the results of the method here, as the boss just does nothing after the first spear throw interrupts her:

      And here are two more examples, where we can actually see the method being done directly (in the first two examples):
      This particular one seems like it will be getting fixed fast by Blizzard, however, as it is the final boss and the method basically removes the majority of the fight and makes it very trivial.
